This month, we celebrate women’s rights and all the women who have made a difference in our world through their contributions and achievements. Looking to engage your students in meaningful lessons around this year’s theme, Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories? Explore our list of short videos that highlight notable women.
Not sure why you should show videos as part of your lesson? Check out a few of the benefits of incorporating videos below.
Using short videos as a pre-reading strategy can be a great way to introduce students to new topics and build background knowledge before digging into more complex texts. Have students watch a video before reading a text about an important woman in history.
Engage and Excite
Videos and other forms of multimedia can help increase student engagement and excitement about what they are learning. Jumpstart a research project for women’s history month by having students explore the videos and select one woman to further research.
Enrich and Extend
When videos are paired with text, they can help students better visualize and comprehend the information they are reading. Pair one of the videos with an informational text and engage students in a discussion to better synthesize the information they learned.
Review and Reinforce
After learning a new topic, teachers can use videos to help students solidify their understanding or review the information they just learned. Play a short video at the end of your lesson as a review for students before they leave or start the next class with a video as a refresher of the prior day’s learning.
